From USAToday:

“Washington D.C. knows a little about elections and this time it thinks it has a winning bid. On Tuesday, the organizing committee formally announced its intention to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.

DC 2024 estimates that the cost of hosting the 2024 Olympic Games will be between $4 and 6 billion using existing stadiums in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.”

Anyone know how much of the $4-$6 billion DC would be accountable for? But for today’s Friday Question of the Day – do you think DC/MD/VA would be a good host for the Summer Olympics?
